I am a 19 year cervical cancer survivor. I had 25 radiation treatments and a radiation implant for 72 hour. I was diagnosed with Lymphedema of my left leg about 10 years ago. I was told that the only treatment for my condition was to wear those thick support hose and that most likely I would have to wear them for the rest of my life. So I resigned myself to the fact that I would be wearing these thick, hot, ugly stocks from now on.
One day my daughter-in-law, Brittney brought me a brochure about Manual Lymphatic Drainage. I called to ask a few questions, made an appointment and could not believe the difference just a few sessions made! The swelling and stiffness became better and this led to me having more energy. I was able to do many things I had not been able to do because of the pain in my leg.
Dawn Pietzsch made a big change in my life. Dawn has not only helped my lymphedema but has also taught me meditation which helps with pain I have from radiation side effects.
She has become my friend, my therapist , and someone I rely on a lot. Thank you!
